Obama Admin Won’t Consider Removing, Reviewing Kennedy Over ‘Quid Pro Quo’ on Emails

Monday at the State Department daily briefing, State Department Deputy Spokesperson Mark Toner was asked about the future of Under Secretary of State for Management Patrick Kennedy, who according to just released FBI interview notes, asked the FBI to change the classification of emails stored on Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s private server in exchange for State allowing the FBI to place more agents in forbidden countries.

When asked about Government Reform Committee chairman Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) and House Intelligence Committee chairman Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA)  requesting the removal of Kennedy, Toner  said, “Well that’s their prerogative. But I can say Pat Kennedy is going to remain at his job and he has the full confidence of the Secretary of State.”
